Charlie's Angels (Non Spoiler) - Review

Charlie's Angels stars Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, Ella Balinska, Elizabeth Banks, Djimon Hounsou, Sam Claflin, Noah Centineo, and Patrick Stewart and follows a systems engineer named Elena (Naomi Scott) who blows the whistle on a dangerous technology. To protect her, Charlie's Angels from across the globe are called into action, putting their lives on the line to protect Elena and save the world from a dangerous threat.

The new angels played by Steward, Scott, and Balinska each do a fine job taking over these roles that were donned by others before them. They make each them their own, each having different personalities that shine. Kristen Stewart was the surprise standout, as she plays the more outspoken, comedic one. Stewart was able to go against all type casting and was able to provide one of the best performances of her career. The film also utilizes the Bosley character in a way that has never been done before, and it not only make sense for the film, but the universe built before it.

Sadly, Charlie's Angels has a very weak script that bogs the movie down quite a bit. Character motivations are confusing, it's predictable, and some of the humor lands flat. Sir Patrick Stewart is utilized in the movie in a way that is unsatisfying as well, and the film starts to drag by the end.

Overall, Charlie's Angels is a subpar movie with a great cast. Though, it wasn't a fantastic film, one can still find enjoyment in it from the leads alone. If they were to announce a sequel with this cast I would definitely be for it... Maybe just hire new writers.

Score: 5.5/10
